Splash of olive oil
2 smoked chicken breasts diced or shredded. (or 500g smoked chicken)
1 brown onion finely diced
6 mushrooms thinly sliced  
3-4 rashes of bacon finely diced
2 cups of salt reduced chicken or vegetable stock

1 425g tin corn kernels
1 425g tin potatoes or 6-8 new potatoes
1/3 cup cream
Corn flour for thickening (if required)
Pepper to taste, should not need salt.

Method:
In a large saucepan, fry the onion, sliced mushrooms and bacon over medium heat until the onions are translucent.

Add the chicken, both tins of corn, stock, and potatoes, and bring to a simmer.

Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are cooked (if not using tinned)

Thicken with 2-4tsp of cornflour (corn starch) in a little water if desired.

Stir through cream just prior to serving.

Serve with buttered bread or toast.
